Winter Skincare Staples Under £10



Lush Jelly Face Masks - FOMO
I have tried Lush's fresh face masks before (see my review of Cosmetic Warrior) and I did really like using it, but putting it in the fridge and having to use it within a month was not really ideal.

The jelly face masks are so much easier to use, last a lot longer and don't need to be kept in the fridge. Plus, mine is lasting a very long time which is always a bonus. I picked FOMO as it is apparently good for problem skin, but it is very moisturising too which was just what I needed.

Boots Tea Tree &Witch Hazel Shine Control Daily Moisturiser
I used to use the whole range in the warmer months, but having switched things up to combat my dry winter skin, I am still using the moisturiser and I love it. Other moisturisers break me out and feel tacky on my face. This one, which is more like a gel than a cream, makes my face feel moisturised, but also matte and oil free, perfect for my oily t-zone and chin. It is so cheap too, I don't think I'll be switching in a hurry.

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser
To tackle the dryness further, I stopped using a foam face wash and went back to using a creamy cleanser. I was considering trying Liz Earle Cleanse And Polish again, but when I saw this on offer in Superdrug for £3, I knew this would do the trick.

It comes with a cloth, but I prefer to use my own flannel, but it is creamy, easy to use and really does get all my makeup off, whilst not dring out my skin and making it feel tight. For the price (it is really often on offer), you can't really go wrong.

Acnecide 5% Benzoyl Peroxide gel
Last year when I went to my GP for my acne and I was perscribed Acnecide 5% Benzoyl Peroxide Gel. It worked fantastically when I first used it and it cleared up my skin so much, but it did dry it out. It is actually available from Superdrug Pharmacy, so when I ran out of my prescription, I ordered another one.

I think my skin may have got used to it now as my spots have come back - but no where near as bad as it was - so I use this once every two days to clear up my spots and scaring. It's definitely one to try if you are struggling with bad skin.

Vaseline
I have been struggling for weeks now with excema and very dry skin around my eyes and cheeks. I tried Oilatum with not a lot of luck and didn't know what else to try. Someone on twitter recommended Vaseline which I hadn't thought of at all, and my goodness is it a lifesaver.

I slather on a load at night onto the really dry areas like my eye lids and tops of my cheeks, and by the morning it is smooth and moisturised with the redness and soreness gone. Not too bad for a £2 tub.

What are your skincare stapes this winter?
